Seriously?

Politics aside,.. Are you kidding me?  Even before I got to the end, I knew that Barak Obama was going to make the list. The reasons sound like a "facilitator" position.  

-- the uses of iPads and other mobile devices in his presidency.  My daughter uses an ipad for notes, streaming video, that doesn't make her an engineer.

--  involved in technology, such as making sure his BlackBerry was secure at the start of his presidency.   Really? It wasn't the NSA, FBI and Secret Service that wanted him to have secure comms? If it wasn't them, then why wasn't it secure before his presidency? I mean if he was an engineer-minded person.

-- and the problems caused by NSA surveillance on individuals of American as well as non-American descent -- earn him a spot on this list.  Again, really? So the president isn't involved with what the NSA does?  And as a "constitutional lawyer by trade, his thinking reminds us of that of an engineer" he can't follow the logic to realize that the 4th Amendment protects against "unreasonable searches and seizures and requires any warrant to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause.".  Considering that you must have a warrant to tap someone's phone in a criminal investigation, it is common sense that if they are doing that WITHOUT a warrant or probable cause, then it must be illegal. 

 

No Dwight Eisenhower? Responsible for planning the invasion of North Africa, D-Day, and during his presidency, The Interstate highway system, DARPA, NASA... 

C'mon EE Times...

I predicted most of these but Obama would never make the list... Sorry... In no way does he think like an Engineer.

NO RATINGS
This quote is a gem.

Next year: Virtual chocolate for Valentine's Day. Our labs are working on it ;-)

ridiculous to spread such little information over 8 slow-loading ad riddled pages

other presidents?

Is there anyone not on this list who belongs there? Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon and a few others came close. Obviously, anyone who was at West Point, in the Army Corps of Engineers, is a candidate.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
